How Does UWT Mobile Global Sim Work?

Make and receive calls or text messages while traveling abroad can be very expensive. To help curb this expense, United World Telecom has introduced an exciting mobile solution: the Global SIM Card.

The Global SIM Card is a small chip that you insert into the back of any unlocked GSM phone. Each UWTMobile Global SIM Card comes with a unique European mobile number where your contacts can reach you (US or UK numbers are also available).

When you make calls the system uses a simple call back process to connect you to the destination number. It involves a slightly different but simple process of dialing out.

UWTMobile offers four different packages to allow you stay connected according to your particular need. Each Global SIM Card comes ready to use with certain amount of call credit and it can be easily recharged over the phone or by email.

How it Works

Insert The SIM Card
Turn your phone off, open the battery housing (located in the back of your phone), remove the existing SIM Card (if applicable), and insert your Global SIM Card. Store the existing SIM card in a safe place.
Turn the phone back on
It might take a few seconds for the handset to find a mobile network, as soon as it does the service is ready to use. Note: if the phone asks for the PIN Number, enter the default number -0000- and click -OK-. To avoid entering the PIN every time you turn on your phone with UWT mobile SIM, change the PIN setting from your phone's SIM options menu.
Start making calls
To place a call dial: the « + » sign or « 00 » followed by the country code and the phone number and press the -Call- or -Send- key. Your handset will display a -Calling- or -Wait for Call- message and start ringing in few seconds (certain phones may display a different message such as call cannot be processed, this is normal, just wait until your phone starts ringing). Answer the call as you usually do and you will be connected in seconds to the number dialed.
